Reviews

"Chan's innovative research connects everyday digital media uses to China's larger issues of gender, sexual, and queer politics. Taking neither a utopian nor a pessimistic stance, he unpacks the multiplicity of dating apps' political and social effects on both marginalized groups and those in power. More importantly, this study precipitates further questions about dating apps' potential to challenge heteronormativity, and to create space for marginalized individuals, in a society with shrinking room for feminist and queer politics."-Current History
